If I render a Hidden Line and Export Image as dwg and then import back into FZ, the position (relative to origin) and scale are not retained regardless of which import scale is chosen.  Can align and scale be made to match between original and import files for ortho views?

 

first image is original 3D File, wireframe, grid is 2' squares

second image is wireframe of 2D dwg import (units set to "from file"), grid is 2' squares

Hi Setz,

 

Yes, this should be added for the future.  To get what you want now, if you use Layout to create a Frame of the desired view, and then Export DWG (not Export Image) then this will allow you to set the desired scale... ;)

+1 for native FormZ DWG scaled export including position relative to origin.  This would improve my workflow immensely.

 

(as in not from Layout, though good to know that exists)
